New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is likely to be active in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins with RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) inactive. Hillis will back up RB Andre Brown.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Jacobs has the lead role, he's basically a must-start, especially with a juicy matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Jacobs will be inconsistent in his production, making him a flex play in deep leagues.

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (soreness) practiced Wednesday, Nov. 13.

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) was sore after the Week 10 win against the Oakland Raiders, but head coach Tom Coughlin said he was otherwise fine.
Fantasy Tip: Brown burst onto the scene in his regular season debut, and will be a hot addition off the waiver wire by fantasy owners this week. He faces a tough matchup against a decent Green Bay Packers rush defense, but he should still be a decent low-end RB2 or flex play if he draws the start in Week 11.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) was only expected to see limited carries, but instead carried a career-high 28 times for a career-high 106 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Tip: If Brown is available off the waiver wire in your fantasy league, he is definitely worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option. He certainly looked a lot more explosive than retreads Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs, and could get a bulk of the carries down the stretch if he can remain healthy.
Sun, 10 Nov 2013 13:12:19 -0800
New York Giants RB Andre Brown rushed 30 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Not bad for a season debut. Look for him to continue to be featured.

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is ready to go for the team's Week 10 game. Brown hopes he gets the ball early and often in his season debut. "I just hope there are no limitations and [they let it] ride," Brown said. "I hope not. This is nine weeks of sitting on my ass not doing anything."
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:22:11 -0800
The New York Giants activated RB Andre Brown (leg) from the short-term Injured Reserve Thursday, Nov. 7, and placed DT Shaun Rogers (knee) on the Injured Reserve in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how much Brown will be used in his season debut against the Oakland Raiders this weekend, but he must be owned in all leagues. He'll become the main back in the second half of the season.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 07:55:02 -0800
New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) is likely headed to Injured Reserve to make room for RB Andre Brown (leg) on the active roster.
Fantasy Tip: If you haven't already, you should seriously considering dropping Wilson from your roster. The move will likely become official later today.
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 20:38:58 -0800
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is expected to be a big part of the team's plan for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillis is expected to be the primary option, with RBs Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs sprinkled into the equation. "I'm pretty sure they are going to switch us in, switch us out," Brown said Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Hillis is your best best as a low-end RB2 or flex play, followed by Jacobs. Brown isn't worth using in any fantasy format, as he makes his way back from injury. However, monitor the situation and be ready to grab him off the waiver wire if he plays better than expected. The job is likely an open competition right now, with the hot hand getting the bulk of the carries going forward.
